Verse 10

Seek ye the priesthood also

The "gainsaying of Korah" was intrusion into the priest's office ("no man taketh this honour unto himself,") Hebrews 5:4. It was an attempt to create a priestly order without the divine authority Hebrews 5:10. The modern analogue is Nicolaitanism Revelation 2:6; Revelation 2:15 the division of an equal brotherhood Matthew 23:8 into "clergy" and "laity"; a vastly different thing from the due recognition of ministry-gifts ; 1 Corinthians 12:4-31; Ephesians 4:8; Ephesians 4:11; Ephesians 4:12 or of elders and deacons ; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; Titus 1:5-9.

Verse 47
